Hakan Calhanoglu and Gigio Donnarumma are both sitting on expiring contracts and Milan are yet to reach an agreement with their respective agent. And with the summer approaching fast, there is cause for concern.
As Tuttosport reports (via MilanLive), it’s a race against time for the Rossoneri to get things done before the summer. The more time it takes, the bigger the risk is of losing them for free in a few weeks, which would be disastrous.
Mino Raiola is asking for €10m per year to renew Donnarumma’s contract, while Milan are willing to reach €7.5m plus bonuses. The agent knows that his demand is exaggerated, but it’s all part of his strategy to get as much as possible.
Even though a few clubs from abroad are interested, none of them would be willing to grant a salary of €10m per year, which would make Donnarumma the second highest-paid goalkeeper in the world.
The difference isn’t as big when it comes to Calhanoglu, as agent Gordon Stipic is asking for €5m per year. Milan have offered €4m plus bonuses and the feeling is that an agreement can be reached very soon.
